Grimes gives baby X AE A-XII his first haircut

Baby X AE A-XII just got his first haircut.

The curiously named infant’s mom, pop star Grimes, gave him an at-home trim and shared the results on her Instagram Stories Thursday.

“Not sure this haircut went well but he’s Viking now,” the “Delete Forever” singer captioned a shot of her 8-month-old baby boy, whom she shares with partner Elon Musk, sporting a new mohawk-style ‘do in the bathtub.

The musician, 32, also shared a snap of herself snipping away at her son’s locks with scissors, perhaps taken by 49-year-old Musk. She clarified that the cut was inspired by the historical British TV series “The Last Kingdom.”

“Haircut inspired by the last kingdom on Netflix which is a masterpiece,” she wrote.

Grimes and Musk welcomed their first child in May 2020. The power couple initially named the newborn “X Æ A-12 Musk,” but were forced to change it to “X AE A-XII”, as special characters and numbers are prohibited by California law.

Grimes previously tweeted that the X is the “unknown variable” in algebra, while the Æ (now AE) refers to the “elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence).” The A-12 (now A-XII) at the end was inspired by the Lockheed Archangel-12 aircraft.

As for how it’s pronounced? “I mean it’s just X, the letter X,” Musk told podcast host Joe Rogan. “And then, the Æ is, like, pronounced ‘Ash’… and then, A-12, A-12 is my contribution.”

“My partner is the one that, actually, mostly, came up with the name,” the Tesla CEO added. “Yeah, she’s great at names.”
